Is there really something missing in our passing game? I don't think so. 1) The scheme has changed by design, focusing on the TE, dink, dunk and YACs. 2) The top five targets are Welker, Branch, Hernandez, Gronkowksi and Woodhead. All have their roles and are playing very, very well. 3) Our #3 WR is doing well in the limited role he has been asked to perform. Tate also earns his keep as an OK kick returner. 4) Our #4 WR is a very solid backup slot receiver. We would be comfortable playing Edelman if either Welker or Branch were unavailable. Edleman also earns his keep as our punt returner, thankfully relieving Welker of that role. 5) We have third round prospect as our #5 WR that we haven't even seen because those in front of him are doing their jobs so well. Since the #3 and #4 are returners, Price must do more than just be a better option at WR (which he may or may not be). 6) Our #6 wide receiver (as noted above only 3 get many reps) is a special teamer as usual. Slater has been one of our two special teams only players since he got here. He is a Belichick favorite at that role. 7) Our #3 TE used to be one of the top receiving TE's in the league. Captain Crumpler is now a top blocker. He is awesome in his role. =============================================== BOTTOM LINE A) We are doing great in the passing game. B) The top contributers are in place for 2011. C) We have three young backups. D) The total cost for this 10 man receiving corp is quite reasonable (WR, TE and 3rd down RB). This group also includes 3 key special teamers: Edelman, Tate and Slater. We might bring in free agent veteran insurance and/or late round competition for Price. However, I don't the need for anything more. Obviously, Belichick will bring in someone if the value is there. I just don't think that the need is there.
